Reigning national sub-junior snooker champion Kreishh Gurbaxani from Maharashtra has won the Q-Stix All India 6Reds Open Tournament here in New Delhi. The final was played today where Kreishh defeated former National Junior champion Shoaib Khan with the scoreline of 5-1.
Kreishh, who scored 6Reds maximum (75) last night was in dominating form and maintained his consistency throughout the tournament. Even in the semi-final, he was down by 2 frames against Pushpender Singh of Railways, but stayed composed and won the next four frames to register 4-win. And then in the final, he obtained a convincing 3 frames lead when Shoaib clinched a frame 52-13 but after that, it was all for Kreishh.
Prodigy of the two-time Asian Champion and former PRO players Yasin Merchant, Kreishh Gurbaxani is already performing well in the Sub-junior and junior category of nationals but winning an All India level open tournament, where all kinds of players perform, is a breakthrough and certainly will raise his confidence in the years to come.
Meanwhile, Pushpender Singh won against Monu Chaudhary of Delhi and secured the 3rd place. (RESULTS)
Winning celebrations for Kreishh Gurbaxani
